SIUThe province’s Special Investigations Unit has concluded there are no reasonable grounds to charge an OPP officer with the Almaguin detachment after an incident in July 2014.

On July 9th last year OPP officers responded to a home in Burk’s Falls.

Information received was that a man pointed a gun at a female and that he felt nearby workers were harassing him.

A 911 call captured the man’s voice yelling at police to stay at the corner. Soon after, a single gunshot was heard.

The SIU investigation determined the man died from a single self-inflicted gunshot and that police had no time or opportunity to prevent what occurred.
